I'd still like the Wild to go for a forward. Preferably a Center or LW. In the 10-20 range, that would be guys like Lazar, Shinkaruk, Wennberg, Rychel, Burakowsky, Gauthier, Compher, and Erne. I barely know anything about any of those guys, but that all look good to me. I saw a mock the other day where the Wild drafted 10th(a little higher than I think they'll go, but eh) and took Shinkaruk. Could definitely do worse.
I've heard Drouin described as more of a playmaker. I hope we draft a goal scorer in this upcoming draft. Realistically, we'll probably go BPA in the 1st round.
If that is the case then that video clip is REALLY DISAPPOINTING because Drouin didn't lift his head once to look for teammates/ He just put his head down and skated. and that will not work in the NHL, he will get rocked.
As many we need until we luckily grab someone who has the ability to steal Koivu's spot from him. Not saying get rid of Koivu, but a young hot shot center capable of becoming a first line center in the NHL is arguably the most valuable commodity in hockey and one we will be needing sooner rather than later.
